. of course that's not the only issue facing obama. >> president obama's picks for his new cabinet members raising some questions. let's take a look at his four newest choices. one thing you might notice about all of them, anybody want to jump in. what do you think >> jon: that's kiss without the make-up. i know these guys. yes! play "lick it up." >> where are the women, for example? where are the people of color? the fourth white male mr. obama has chosen in the last month >> where are the women? where are the minors >> jon: you're telling me the president, the president of the united states couldn't have found one woman or minority to fill an important job? what about instead of john kerry susan rice for secretary of state. lady and minority. triple word score >> i will do everything in my power to block her. she's not qualified. >> jon: oh, right. mccain. do you have any evidence that barack obama himself is somewhat diverse is being discriminatory in his hiring practices >> the "new york times" ran this photo the other day showing the president with a group of all white men advising hi
for you. ♪ >> welcome to "hannity" now. earlier today president obama held the last press conference of his first term and it was in some respects a nearly perfect encapslation of a what a reckless and irresponsible and fundamentally dishonest man that he is. we'll start by taking a look at the press conference. what it showed about president obama and there are, i think, three points we can take away from this. now, the first, it has to do with hypocrisy. throughout the press conference, obama blasted republicans, who want to tie the debt ceiling to cutting spending and obama says blow up the economy and risk the full faith and credit of the united states and to do so is irresponsible, the consequences of not paying our bill would be disastrous. the charges went on and on and on and made it sound like only an anarchist would oppose raising the debt ceiling. listen to this: . >> what i will not do is to have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people, the threat that unless we get our way, unless you gut medicare or medicaid or otherwise slash things that the amer
? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to fair share of security. protext for their kids -- protection for their kids and gun-free zone for ours. >> eric: bobbe, start that. >> bob: there is the punk ad. terrible ad. i made ads for years and that thingbe doesn't deserve to be on television. look he got in things that had nothing to do with guns. they went after obama's kids. >> greg: no, they didn't. >> eric: they didn't. >> bob: yes, they did. >> greg: no, no no, no. >> bob: you interrupted me. >> greg: i'm going to interrupt you again. i said this points two weeks ago. when rahm emanuel was going off aboutbe guns his kids are protected at a school. same with obama's kids. same with david gregory's kids. obama could have won over a lot of people if he said i want every child to be as safe as mine. that means to have security. that's all he has to say. he didn't say that. everybody had the right to have their kids as safe as president obama's. that is not a cheap ad. that is a factual ad. >> bob: they should
, exploitive and let's be candid obama's moral outrage is highly selective. he feels the grief of people who can advance his cause more than those who don't. for example, remember obama downplayed the fort hood massacre, a muslim extremist shot on the military base. that was so-called workplace violence, that wasn't terrorism and obama's message is that even if there's one thing we can do to reduce this violence, even if there's one life that can be saved then we've got an obligation to try. is that really the standard, mr. president? because if it is, well, you need to apply that across the board, meaning is it now an obligation to ban motorcycles, bicycles, knives, et cetera? see how ridiculous it is to set up that standard that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderf
president obama held the press conference of the first term nrk some respects a nearly perfect encapulation of what a reckless man he is. there are three points that we can take away from this. the first has to do with hypocrisy. obama blasted republican who's want to tie raising debt keeling to cutting spending. renz who do so, obama said they risk the full faith and credit of the united states and to do so is irresponsible. the consequences would be quote, a disaster, he made it sound like only an anarcihist would pose raising the debt keeling. >> what i will not do is have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people. the threat unless we get our way, unless you gut medicare or medicaid or if otherwise slash things that the american people don't believe should be slashed, that we're going to threaten to wreck the entire economy. look. i -- i don't think anyone would consider my position unreasonable here, democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when there is a republican president. but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would
could have done it twice. >> pretty powerful and tomorrow, president obama will announce his power grab through executives orders, he will once again bypass congress and this will likely include banning assault weapons and blocking importation of certain guns made overseas, but president obama's willingness, even eagerness to unilateral ly 19 executives orders related to gun shows and guns, proves he's willing to stretch the constitution and presidential powers now to the breaking point. we have done this several times before, we saw in libya where president obama did not get congressional approval and launched air assaults over there. we saw when president obama made recess appointments when the senate wasn't in recess. that violated the separation of powers and of course, we have co-equal branches of government. we saw when president obama decided to issue an executive order stopping deportation of thousands of illegals, why? he couldn't get the dream act passed. we saw when he jammed through obamacare, remember scott brown, 41st vote, the guy suppose today stop it, he's the reconcili
today, president obama held the final press conference of his first term in the east room of the white house. the main attraction, our old friend the debt ceiling. they could default on the debt, unless the debt ceiling is raised. republicans want the president to cut spending before they i gree on a deal. but the president at no time seem eager for compromise. listen. >> we have to stop lurking from crisis to crisis to crisis. when there is a clear pass that requires discipline, responsibility and compromise. >> dana: yet, he showed little willingness to do so. >> i'm willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce the deficit, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they have racked up. what i will not do is to have that negotiation with gun at the head of the people. >> dana: interesting choice of words to describe that. eric, you talked about not wanting the country to lurch from crisis to crisis. most americans would agree and want washington to fix fundamental problems. why do we have to have the debat
that president obama can take on gun control. we hear that these actions could include imposing new limits on imported finance and agencies to share mental health records. and with americans second amendments on the line we're getting reports escalating gun sales, the president blames on gun supporters. >> as far as people lining up and purchasing more guns, i think that we've seen for some time now that those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government's about to take all your guns away. and you know, that there's probably an economic element to that. it obviously is good for business. >> megyn: chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of power play live. and since he's made those remarks, there's been considerable pushback from gun rights supporters, saying he just doesn't get it. it's not that anybody has scared them into otherwise, that believing that something is going to happen that's not going to happen. they're listening to the debate right
